Premiere: Meet INIGO and her piano-backed debut single, Hurricane
It's the first taste of her debut, LANKS-co-produced EP due out next year.
There's a real beauty in artists absolutely knocking their debut singles out the park, and in the case of Brisbane musician INIGO and her debut single Hurricane, she's done precisely that. In her first solo release, the bright rising name bursts onto the scene with a single that amalgamates the best of many genres - from catchy and upbeat pop hooks marked by slight soulful twangs right through to a piano-backed, indie-injected production - to create a real confident and bold moment that is instantly replayable and incredibly catchy. Combining her mixed influences in names like Sylvan Esso and Radiohead with this slight pop feeling creates something quite unique, and with it marking the first single from her forthcoming debut EP (it's expected in April 2019 at this stage), there's a promise of plenty more to come.
"Hurricane is about learning to live in the moment," she says on the single, which along with the full EP, was co-produced by LANKS and Aidan Hogg. "I'm always thinking 23 steps ahead and spending my 'moments' trying to prepare and plan for future 'moments'. It's about facing and embracing the eye of the storm, redefining 'the moment' and allowing myself to be swept off my feet and instead, be caught up and be completely present." Arriving with a multi-state debut tour to kick off the EP cycle - full dates below - Hurricane marks INIGO's position as a real 'one to watch' amongst out constantly growing indie-pop scene, so it's best to jump on board now before she breaks out and becomes one of our scene's most promising names.
